Is it just me or does this seem to be a really bad year for authors? It seems I see author obituaries every time I check the news.

I really liked Barbara Neely's Blanche White mysteries. It was so unusual at the time to have the viewpoint of a domestic worker in a crime story. It's such a shame that  Barbara won't be able to receive her Grand Master Award from MWA. But at least she knew about it before she died.

That is so sad but, I agree, it's good to know she was aware  of this recognition.
